This week we will conclude our mini-series in Romans as we work through Romans 8:31-39. As you recall, Romans 1-5 is all about justification. We are justified in Christ by His grace. Romans 6-8 focuses on sanctification. We are not perfect but live under the progressive influence of His holiness. Because of His active work we are also free from condemnation. Romans 8:31-39 reminds us that there is nothing that can separate us from His love. We are His adopted children and nothing can change the progressive work of His grace in our lives!
This Sunday we will be examining a passage from Luke as we continue our Neighbors series. Luke 8:40-48 begins as Jesus is returning to Galilee. The Galileans rush to greet him. As Jesus is welcomed, two main events take place within this passage. The first person Luke wants the reader to recognize is Jairus and the second is a woman. Luke gives us no name for the woman, but the names are not what Luke intends for us to take away
Our Pastor writes most of the blog posts we publish, however, occasionally some of our other church leadership (some staff, some volunteer) who also contribute to the New Life blog.
